Default RyanP's 157hp 318ft/lbs Mk2 Caddy TDi Van

dThought I'd finally make a topic for my van, I've had it for 18months and never found the time to make a post, plus the fact I did not want to be guessing power figures and not be able to back them up, although I was only 2hp out! Lol

This was on the same rollers that my (then) standard 2.0TDi Jetta made 132hp, I don't fluff any figures as it's really only for my reference that I put it on anyway, plus the fact the Dyno was booked and the customer let me down! I could fit a larger turbo and get another 20hp without changing anything else but I’m happy as it is.

This is the maximum the standard turbo will push out, I'm running 1psi more than anyone says I should and I only get a whiff of smoke during spool. The van has covered about 10k in this state of tune and about 5k before that with just the injectors and no Re-map. I drive it hard and nothing has let go so far, regular oil changes (6-8k) and letting it warm up/cool down are critical!

The picture is a little out of date but I’ve only cleaned it once for these so I'll not be taking any more soon, lol

I'll get an engine bay pic when I actually clean it, someone lit a fire next to my van and all the ash is still under the bonnet, lol

Spec List:
ALH TDI Engine (90BHP)
Transporter T4 151PS ‘764’ Injectors
Garrett GT1749V Turbo (Standard)
PD130 Inlet with Race Pipe

Modded Airbox
De-Cat Downpipe
2 ” Stainless Exhaust System

Custom Hockey Puck Front engine mount
G60 Flywheel and Sachs VR6 Clutch
Socketed ECU with EGR and MAF Delete Tune by DarksideDevelopments

G60 Calipers with Braided Hoses
Black Diamond Predator Pads
280mm Drilled Discs

16” Ibiza Cupra Mk3 Wheels with 195/45 Tyres
Ibiza Cupra R Bilstein/H&R Front Suspension
Ibiza Cupra 23mm Anti Roll Bar
TT solid rear wishbone bush
Flipped axle
Custom Spring Shackles to raise back up 25mm
Custom GAZ Adjustable Rear Shocks
Full Geometry Setup @ VW Dealership

Mk3 VR6 Highline Leather Heated Seats

Ibiza Cupra Mk2 GTi Splitter
Polo Wing Mirrors
Clear Side Repeaters and Indicators

The next mods I think I’ll be doing is a rear anti roll bar and maybe fit some airbags to the rear axle as it likes to scrub when I’ve got more than 2 engines in the back! Ideally it needs painting too!

I'm also looking for an 08 onwards Mk3 Caddy DSG to have a play with, I'll be putting a GTB turbo on there and some other tasty mods for 200+ hp and handling to match.

Thanks for looking!
